Thank you for your interest in St Clement Danes School.
This is an extremely exciting time to join St Clement Danes School and the wider Danes Educational Trust family of schools. St Clement Danes has reached the end of a 6-year £9 million expansion programme including new Art, Maths, Science, Technology, LRC, PE and Sports facilities as well as significant investment in pastoral provision. This expansion, allied with the beautiful setting in 47 acres in the Chilterns, an area of outstanding natural beauty, ensures both students and staff experience a first-class learning environment.
With over 1000 applicants for 240 places annually, St Clement Danes School is a popular local choice. It is partially selective, allocating 10% of places based on musical aptitude and 10% on the basis of an academic test. When last visited by Ofsted, it was awarded outstanding in every one of the then 31 measures. It has more recently been awarded ‘World Class School’ status, an accolade awarded to schools who have moved ‘beyond outstanding’.
St Clement Danes is a wonderful blend of tradition and adaptation. We are relentless in the pursuit of excellence in everything we do for students, staff and the wider community. The key drivers that underpin our vision at St Clement Danes are success for all, character development for all and dignity for all.
St Clement Danes believes diversity makes our school stronger which is why we are a proud equal opportunities employer and encourage all of our staff to bring their authentic selves to work. We believe in fairness in the workplace and we encourage applications from people who identify as Black, Asian and from a Minority Ethnic background, who are underrepresented at the school. We celebrate diversity so that different cultures can thrive, adding to the richness and experience of our community.
We look for talented and committed people and work hard to keep them, helping them to reach their full potential. In return, we offer an exceptional CPDL programme within the Trust and the opportunity to share best practice within and beyond St Clement Danes and the Trust through our leadership of the St Clement Danes Challenge Partners Hub.
I want St Clement Danes School to continue as a World Class School and as a central part of the local community. If you share our commitment to the development of every child’s intelligence and character, we want to hear from you. If you choose to apply for a job with the Trust, you will join a happy, successful team whilst making a wise investment in your future career.
If you would like to organise a visit to the school or if you would like to discuss any position in more detail then please contact Dawn Gamble (Recruitment Manager) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
